Snowpack is still generally stable as the 1-2 inches of new snow in the past 24 hrs was not enough of a load to change the stability equation. Lots of weak snow on W-N-E aspects...but no load/slab above the weak snow. In this area, southerly aspects have a stronger snowpack with multiple hard crusts. Check out a summary of the Soldier Mtns snowpack on YouTube at https://youtu.be/O94Isi1X3zY.
1" new at trailhead, 2-2.5" new snow at 8000'. Some isolated wind-loading in extreme terrain and isolated locations.
Middle elevation shady slopes (NW-N-NE): see pit and photo...upper half is about as weak as it can get. Bottom half is hanging in there.
Middle elevation solar slopes (SW-S-SE): lots of very hard crusts, melt layers, and some facets but with perc columns in the FC layers.
Middle elevation margins/partially shady (W, E): ugly crust+FC matrix in upper half of the snowpack. May take some weight/load to make it fail, but it can.
Below about 7000'=shady slopes are all faceted to the ground, margins are a thin mess, and solars are dirt/sage.
No avalanche problems at lower and middle elevations. There may have been some isolated wind slabs in extreme terrain near Smoky Dome.
I avoided avalanche starting zones due to thin snow cover. I was not concerned with traveling in avalanche tracks or runout zones.
